Please send your opinion on the establishment of regulations prohibiting the feeding of cats in Kyoto city.

Please send your voice to Kyoto city!
Kyoto city is now in a hurry to establish a regulation prohibiting of feeding cats.
This includes the feeding of stray cats.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, sent a letter requesting exclusion of the feeding of stray cats.

This is from Kyoto news paper.

Leaving of feces and urine by pets, and irresponsible feeding, will be prohibited in a regulation in Kyoto city.

September 29, 2014
The mayor of Kyoto city, Daisaku KADOKAWA, clarified his intention to establish the regulations prohibiting feces and urine of house dogs and cats, and irresponsible feeding, before the end of the year.
Penalty for the violation is under consideration.

Kyoto city said that the damage from feces and urine on the road and riverbed seems endless.
A complaint to Kyoto city in 2013 alleged 398 cases by dogs, and 271 case by cats.
To address this problem, Kyoto city started a 16-member project team in December.
However, beside the improvement of ethics of the owners, it is necessary to establish policies for regulating obligations and prohibitions. (Mayor Kadokawa)

Concerning the prohibition of acts of leaving feces and urine by dogs and cats, and also feeding, it is assumed that these things are perpetuating a nuisance for the neighbors.
Also Kyoto city said that we should consider having a penalty included with the regulation to ensure effectiveness.

Kyoto city said that of the 4 cities in Kinki area, Kobe city is the only one with this penalty.


We Inuneko Kyusainowa sent a letter of petition to the mayor of Kyoto city, to demand the exclusion of the feeding of stray / unknown cats from the regulation and charter.
If it is included in the regulation and charter, it would cause prejudice, and have a bad effect on the volunteers who administer to stray cats.
Kyoto city aims to establish the regulations by the end of the year.
So we have no time to wait.
Please everyone, ask the mayor of Kyoto to exclude the feeding of stray cats from the regulation and the charter.
I believe he might listen and understand.

Please send your opinion to the mayor of Kyoto from here.






About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
